Asthma and the Very Young Child: Next Steps
If you think your child might have asthma, talk to your child’s doctor or to an allergist. An allergist can help you make an Asthma Action Plan so that you know when your child’s asthma is under control, when you need to change medicines, and when emergency help is needed. An Asthma Action Plan should have goals for your child’s asthma treatment and health. Children with asthma also should get a flu shot each fall.
With the right treatment, your child can sleep through the night, avoid missing time from day care or preschool, and breathe easy.
